in u.s. history. sandy could cost another 10 to 30 billion dollars in lost business. sandy made its impact late monday night and early tuesday morning so when the sun came up yesterday we got a picture of the devastation it left behind. the eastern coastline may never look the same. sandy literally brought the ocean to the door steps of beach front homes. in new jersey a roller coaster enjoyed by generations of beach goers now sits in the atlantic ocean. the record storm surge tossed a boat on the train tracks, but with rail service suspended no trains were in danger of hitting. the storm ranged from north carolina, where a coastal road washed away to inland areas which saw blizzard conditions. northward to maine where massive waves crashed ashore. to the midwest where the storm stirred up the great lakes. here in new york travel within the city was made difficult. subways flooded and a fleet of taxicabs was left under water. the hurricane force winds fueled a fire that decimated a community that left many to wonder what to do next. this morning much of lower manhattan remains in da
